Abstract

There is evidence that widely used interactive medical devices such as infusion pumps pose interaction difficulties. Yet this evidence is widely dispersed, and difficulties in programming, interaction and sociotechnical design have rarely been a focus for study. Interaction difficulties are effectively invisible. To understand why, it is necessary to study the cultural and organizational contexts within which devices are designed, deployed and used. In this paper, we present examples illustrating interaction difficulties and outline features of the context that keep those difficulties invisible.
